This chapter discusses the culmination of the Labour government's historic campaign for a ‘right to roam’ in the 2000 Countryside and Rights of Way Act (CRoW). It provides a brief commentary and policy history on the issue of countryside access in terms of rural politics. The chapter argues that the issue of accessibility has not been sufficiently addressed by complicated, managerial legislative provisions for open access.

Keywords:   right to roam, Labour government, CRoW, countryside access, rural politics, managerial legislative provisions
